Stockholm studio DICE reallocating resources to next Battlefield, though will continue to support its Star Wars shooter.
A portion of the DICE development team working on Star Wars Battlefront is moving on to the next Battlefield project, expected to be called Battlefield 5, which is scheduled for release in 2016.
Development director Dan Vanderlind wrote on his Twitter account that "a part" of the Battlefront development team will continue to work on the Star Wars shooter, likely in terms of online support and post-release content. The remainder of the team will be moved onto other tasks, and Vanderlind himself is switching focus to Battlefield 5.
He said: "Now that we've shipped Battlefront and a part of the team continues to work on it, I am moving on to another project, the next Battlefield."
